Patient : About 2 weeks ago I was diagnosed with Strep.
I was put onto Keflex and that wasn't helping after
a week so I was put onto Augmentin. After 5 days of Augmentin,
I was still not better so the doctor did another swab and it was
still positive. He said to stay on the medicine for 2 more days
and see how I am. Came back 2 days later and I was not better
and I still had strep. Doctor put me on azithromycin (z pack)
and he did blood work for mono which came out negative.I started that this past wednesday
and I am still feeling very very tired. i can't keep my eys opened
and I feel like I want to sleep all day. No matter how much I sleep
I am still so tired. The doctor said that it could be that I am
getting over the strep or it may be a virus. Do you think the
tiredness is from being on 2 antibiotics at the same time?
Should I go back to the doctor and see if the strep is gone? I
never felt this tired before. I lost about 7 pounds within 2 weeks.
